So the Winnipeg Jets have decided to keep the name, as the fans had wished that was clear on polls from my site but also from others. The poll on my site was far more resounding (76%) than the poll done in the Winnipeg Sun (58%), and snubbed the mayor’s comment about how the new team wouldn’t be called the Jets (same story as previous). Not good for political media, eh?
True North just released the new Winnipeg Jets logo late Friday afternoon upon learning it had leaked on the Internet via this picture showing the new Jets logo on merchandise. All that is available within 24 hours of that release are in small files of the logos so there isn’t a lot for me to work with to create wallpapers. However, for the early adaptors and fervent fans, of which I know there are many in Winnipeg, here are 10 designs below in 11 different sizes.
The new hockey franchise in Winnipeg probably won’t be called the Jets, despite all the nostalgic fans wanting it so.
Even if they do get called the Jets, they’ll have a new logo, despite all the nostalgic fans probably wanting the old uniforms to be worn.
However, I’m thinking some people will want some old Jets logo wallpapers cause when they left in 1996, wallpapers weren’t all that big a deal in the computer world, the Internet was just a baby… and not many people had widescreen and large monitors the size they are today.
So here you go, Jets fans. Enjoy! I got the graphics from various sources on the Internet and touched them up in various ways, from just adjusting contrast to combining graphics into new wallpapers.
I’ll finish the set later this week and remove this last sentence when done.
